Boxer Ryan Garcia fired by WBC for insulting black people and Muslims

American professional boxer, Ryan Garcia, has been expelled from the country by the World Boxing Council for repeatedly using racial slurs against black people and insulting Muslims in comments streamed live on social media.

WBC president Mauricio Suleiman announced the fine against Garcia on social media platform X.

“Exercising my authority as president of the WBC, I am hereby removing Ryan Garcia from any activity with my organization,” Solomon posted. “We reject any form of discrimination.”

Garcia posted a series of apologies on X.

“I was trolling, I want all the killing to stop,” Garcia wrote. “I love everyone, sorry if I offended you.”

Oscar De La Hoya, who promotes Garcia, condemned Garcia's comments in a social media post Friday.

“There is no room for hate or intolerance at my company. I condemn Ryan's words in the strongest possible terms,” ​​the statement said. “I see he's apologized, and that's a start – but it's a start to regaining the trust and respect of those of us who have supported him and continue to do so. We hope “We hope that Ryan will use his time away from the game to address the issues that he has discussed publicly. We are ready to help.”

Last month, Garcia's surprise victory over Devin Haynie in April was changed to a no-contest after he tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs.

The New York State Athletic Commission suspended Garcia for a year and said he must forfeit the £790,000 ($1m) he made on the fight and pay a $10,000 fine.
